These are some of my favorite ages to photograph. They are constantly moving and perhaps a bit of a challenge to chase, but their expressions are priceless and all their own, not to be coerced, even by a witty photographer or pleading mama. Those chubby cheeks and tiny fingers. Hand holding, hip carrying, face smooching, peek-a-booing tickle monsters. These are the days that feel long, while the years fly by all too quickly. In the midst of bedtime stories, tantrums, snacks, naps, cuddles, and crying, there is so. much. love. LOVE. This family quickly stole my heart at Beckham’s 6 month session. I blinked and 6 months later here we are at ONE. Sweet little buddy, I hope your 2nd year is twice as good!
